1998, then-Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee spoke at the National Pastors' Conference, explaining why he entered into politics:
I didn't get into politics because I thought government had a better answer. I got into politics because I knew government didn't have the real answers, that the real answers lie in accepting Jesus Christ into our lives. […]
I hope we answer the alarm clock and take this nation back for Christ.
In the past, Huckabee has also claimed that God supports Republicans. McCain, similarly, has claimed that "the Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation."
If that didn't tickle your 'funny bone' take a gander at the GQ writeup currently online. A small piece to tempt you:
It's only when Huckabee talks religion that you realize how conservative he is. Unlike most of the GOP field, he isn't just trying to woo the religious right. He is the religious right—a former Baptist minister, a believer's believer on abortion and gay marriage, a skeptic about evolution. But while it may seem strange to hear a candidate say "stewardship of the earth" in one breath and "abortion mill" in another, you should get used to it: Huckabee's mix of economic populism and social conservatism might just be the future of the post-Bush GOP.
Ok..I am going to have nightmares now about this jackass. Seriously..the future of the GOP? Dear Buddha..save us.
